PechaKucha Rotterdam #42
Are you ready for a night full of out-of-the-box inspiration? 8 speakers will enter the stage to talk about their unexpected fascination, bizarre hobby, inspiring journey or remarkable research by using the 20×20 PechaKucha format: a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, for 20 seconds each. The result is an informal and fun gathering where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps — just about anything, really.
PechaKucha was first held in 2003 by archictecture firm Klein Dytham in Tokyo, as an event where young designers meet, mingle and present their work. Nowadays it has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, with PechaKucha Nights in over a thousand cities such as New York, Shanghai and Amsterdam. Up until 2016 there had been a total of 37 editions held in Rotterdam. In 2019 BlueCity decided to move on with the 38th, and all the following editions, in order to offer bright ideas and entrepreneurship a well-deserved stage.
